NEW ORLEANS, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — After her success in founding Phatmath, Dr. Iris Mack is excited to announce the launch of MathQED – a website dedicated to assisting math students worldwide.

In response to the rise in international numeric illiteracy, MathQED was developed to assist any math student, from kindergarten to college.

To properly surpass its predecessor, Phatmath, an award-winning site, MathQED focuses on two important principles.  The first principle is that every student deserves a solid education in mathematics, a required subject for many careers.  The second principle is that every student deserves access to affordable math tutoring and homework help.

MathQED provides student-teacher interaction via online forums, chat rooms and cooperative problem solving.  Students can ask or answer questions, assist other students, and solve challenging problems.  MathQED offers special interest forums for those searching for internships and job opportunities, educational grants and loans, scholarships, career coaches, certified tutors, math buddies, math coaches, role models and interesting news stories.  Students will also find tips to prepare for exams, including the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT and LSAT exams.

But these servicers are just the beginning.  MathQED’s current array of services is only a small start towards an affordable and high-quality education for all.  In the future, MathQED plans to offer financial aid to qualified students and create more educational opportunities.  The online service will collaborate with corporate sponsors, e-learning development and management companies, resulting in state-of-the-art programs complete with interactive tools to make math help more effective than ever.  And with a MathQED Mobile App expected to be launched by mid 2017, an inexpensive and effective math-based tutoring and education are within sight.

About MathQED

In 2007, Dr. Iris Mack created Phatmath to help combat innumeracy.  Phatmath quickly garnered its own success and achievements, including listing on Top 50 Social Sites for Educators and Academics, 25 Useful Networking Sites for Grad Students, and 25 Savvy Social Media Sites for Grad Students.  To evolve Phatmath further, Dr.  Mack has revamped the entire website, resulting in an improved site called MathQED.

My name is Iris Mack. I grew up in New Orleans. With lots of hard work and support, I earned a Harvard doctorate in Applied Mathematics and a Sloan Fellowship Executive MBA from the London Business School.  I have had the opportunity to work at various energy and financial institutions, act as a faculty member at MIT, and work at NASA and AT&T Bell Labs – where I earned a patent on optical fibers.  A bit more about me and my work may be found on my Amazon’s Author page and the About Us page.

As we all know, many students struggle with math and may need some extra support. Unfortunately they may not be able to afford extra math help or it may not be readily available. Hence, their obstacles in learning mathematics grow more insurmountable with each successive year.  Poor understanding of math prevents many students from pursuing their dream careers and also impairs other crucial skills.

In 2007 I created the mathematics edutainment social network www.PhatMath.com to help students overcome math anxiety and gain confidence. I wanted to help change negative stereotypes about math to show that it can be empowering and fun.  My social network www.PhatMath.com  received the following national recognition:

To evolve www.PhatMath.com further, I revamped the entire website, resulting in a new and improved site:  MathQED (www.MathQED.com).  MathQED is more than a tutoring website.  At MathQED students, parents and teachers alike contribute to make math interesting and FUN!

Math is made less intimidating on MathQED – with the help of older students who have been there and done that!  Affordable tutors are available on MathQED for one-on-one math help.  Also, parents are taught to teach their loved ones more effectively.  With this reduced level of stress paired with proper guidance, students can actually enjoy completing their math homework and studying for exams.
